DAMO FLEX

Damo Flex, the Modular Rack Repair Kit

The DAMO FLEX is a versatile solution for repairing and protecting damaged pallet rack columns. This competitively priced repair kit rivals the expense of an upright replacement. It’s a cost-effective solution with a modular design which permits more flexibility at installation. The modularity comes from the fact that the braces are not welded to the repair unit, and the bracing is measured and cut on-site, by the installers. The DAMO FLEX can also be combined with another flex unit to make a front and back leg repair. Since this product comes in separate pieces, more units will fit on a pallet, reducing the cost of freight.

ADJUSTABLE RACK REPAIR KIT

The DAMO FLEX was designed for warehouse areas that are less prone to damage from forlift operation. For instance, it’s suited for mid-aisle rack systems, where forklift traffic is less dense. The DAMO FLEX benefits from the same patented design as our DAMO PRO but the front post and modular components are made from lower gage 3/16" thick steel.

The DAMO FLEX line carries a 10-year warranty against manufacturing defects. Although this kit is substantially sturdier than any original damaged upright it is replacing, it does not carry a lifetime warranty against impact like our Pro line.

COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION

It really shines when you factor in the extra labor costs and downtime associated with an upright replacement versus using the DAMO FLEX. Its installation requires virtually no unloading, no dismantling of the racking system, and it’s installed in less than 1 hour with a DAMO EASY LIFT, boosting productivity in the process! As well, the modularity and standard sizes of the unit are such that you can carry an inventory. This flexibility is made possible with the use of braces that are cut on-site, at installation.

Best uses for the DAMO FLEX

  • When dealing with tighter maintenance budgets
  • In low traffic, low-velocity areas of the warehouse
  • Middle of aisle locations
  • On standard racking systems that are less than 20 ft. high
  • When looking to ship more units per pallet to optimize freight costs

Benefits

Strong

We use high-quality structural steel with a heavy gage to offer true impact resistance.

Bolt-On Kits

All DAMO FLEX kits are shipped ready to be installed. No welding is done on site.

Any Type of Rack

We will repair and protect any type of rack, even those that are no longer manufactured.

Powder Coated Paint

A process called electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) is used to achieve the application of the powder coating to the steel. All our paint is done in-house, in our new facility.

Peace of Mind

Our repair kits also protect the rack column after the installation. This means you no longer have to worry about damaging this location again.

Custom Units

Our units are made-to measure in height and size, but we also offer the possibility of choosing a special paint color, galvanizing the unit or modifying the foot plate when requested.

When faced with damaged racking components, one can choose to repair them with dedicated repair units or replace them with original OEM parts. Rack repair products offer several advantages that need to be considered:

Permanent

Our repair products are permanent, robust, and come with a warranty that provides full peace of mind. Replacing with OEM parts means your uprights remain vulnerable to impact and may get damaged again and again.

Quick Delivery

Lead time for Damotech products is short. Units are ready to ship in two weeks. That's much faster than ordering OEM parts which can take weeks to arrive.

Less Disruptive

The installation process is quick and easy, and unloading is usually not necessary, thanks to the Easy Lift. No need to dismantle and reattach beams, which means less downtime. It's more cost effective and has less impact on your day to day operations.

All these reasons make our repair products a smarter solution and a better long-term investment.
